Domiciliary physiotherapy

Do you feel you would benefit from physiotherapy treatment but have difficulties travelling to a hospital or outpatient clinic?

Our domiciliary service is available to those living within a 3 mile radius of St John’s Wood and provides assessment and treatment by one of our experienced physiotherapists in the comfort of your own home.

Domiciliary physiotherapy allows the therapist the opportunity to assess you in your home environment. By doing this we can identify and address any specific difficulties you may be experiencing.

The therapist can also assess your outdoor mobility and address any issues you have with accessing the community environment.

We can also refer you on to other medical or therapy staff where this would be appropriate or beneficial.

Input from the domiciliary physiotherapist can help your return home from hospital be a more successful and supported transition and in some cases could prevent admission to hospital.

Conditions suitable for referral include:

  • Orthopaedic conditions e.g. Hip/Knee replacements, Fractures
  • Neurological conditions e.g. Stroke, Parkinson’s Disease
  • Musculoskeletal conditions e.g. Back/Neck Pain
  • Respiratory conditions e.g. Chest Infection/COPD
  • Loss/decrease of mobility/function
  • Fear or history of falls

However, other conditions may also benefit from the input of a physiotherapist.

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP. You can simply refer yourself and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.
